    @FatsoJetson - I really pisses off bosses if you aim for their tails

    Watch out for holes in the floor in the depths. You really don't want to fall down those early on

    So Sen's, am I supposes to go up or down. I went high over the bridges and through the pendulums then out where the boulder trap is. Found onion head but he's mute at the minute. Went through a fog door and got killed by a snake dude. I bet I get killed off a pendulum on my way back to my bloodstain.

    @andyc1980

    For progression, the way is up. That being said, there are some items and another place you can get to by going down. Careful down there though ;-)

    There are loads of places you can get to on your way up with some really useful items, and it is not immediately obvious how to get them (or that they even exist!).

    I needed a fair bit of advice on here to get all the loot. You can always come back for all that though.

    I'd concentrate on progressing for now and come back and clear it later. Up to you though obviously. :)

    @robc84 yeah I've found a couple of things already, ring of steel protection and a shotel. I think tonight I'll get my souls the homeward to spend them, then try going low.

    Careful because of the titanite demons? I saw one as I hit the ground from a fatal fall last night. Getting out of Blighty and finally seeing sunlight again was nice. Although I need to go back to use this firekeeper soul I found on my way out.

    @EMarkM I've already got one of those, but have put it away in favour of the Dragon Crest Shield, which has better Fire resistance. But is it the Spider Shield's poison resistance I need?

    @FatsoJetson Very much so, where you're headed... There's a good set of armour you will soon find also.

    For some random reason I fired this up yesterday, after royally sucking (for 30 hours) at Demon's Souls before concluding I wasn't man enough for it.

    It's fun. It's ropey, and quite ugly. It's fucking confusing knowing where to go. it's annoying knowing that my levelling up choices are going to bite me in the arse unless I spend a weekend reading Wikis.

    But it's fun.

    Stay tuned for the victory parade when, in a few months, I've actually killed a boss. Except that prelude one, who was a piece of piss.

    @Phattso

    Rule of thumb is vitality and endurance are 'safe' to level if you're unsure of wasting points. Endurance is good up to 40 so you've got plenty of time yet. That's if you're playing a standard melee character that is

    The non spoilery tips in my sig might help get you going too

    @quadfather what would you recommend takin VIT to. Think I've got it around 16. Going with the old I can hit harder than you strategy

    @andyc1980 You can keep Vit going all the way to 99 without penalty, but don't do so at the cost of whichever of Str or Dex you have chosen.

    @FatsoJetson Boss spoilers:-

    Take out the magic caster on the balcony before entering the boss area. You only have to do this once.

    Watch the boss's attack pattern carefully. There is one, and only one, completely safe window for attacking it per "round".

    Always attack the rear
    .
    I have always had much more success with attacking to the side. Gapey's swish is a bit mean.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    From my experience of Dark Souls, I've found End to be more important than Vit, especially in early - mid game. With enough End and the right equipment and good stamina management vit becomes less important.

    It's definitely worth levelling, but I just put a few points in here and there, concentrating mostly on dex and end. Once you have them high enough (40), then start concentrating on Vit as you'll likely need more of it for the final 3rd of the game.

    That's what worked for me anyway :)

    Get both to 40, but no more!

    Do Vit and perhaps Int, Fai & Att, if required, every now and then.

    @EMarkM yeah I knew about the 40 soft cap but wasn't sure if it was for all stats. Just had a look on the stats page on the wiki to swot up on them. Could probably do with another attunement slot though.

    @robc84 first time I was specifically going to kill him. Had a few run ins with him after forgetting he was there but always escaped with my life(or death as I'm hollow a lot of the time)

    @Architect_z I did capra first time with this character I think. It was a shallow victory as I cheesed him with firebombs from outside the fog. It was revenge for the 20 attempts on my first character though.

    After I found the forest guardians on my first playthrough I went into a levelling frenzy like a child locked in a sweetshop overnight. I ended up being over-levelled for most of the rest of the playthrough. I also played offline so I could unhollow and summon Solaire when available. Bosses became too easy.

    It was just too tempting to farm souls in the forest, and it kind of spoils you for everything to follow. Or maybe I'm just too content to grind, I could happily collect the 7k several times for one level-up.

    I knew I wouldn't get back to that bloodstain. First bridge in Sen's killed me.

    You'll be rolling in souls in the next area. Don't worry too much :)
